Final q.1

Michael Porter and Mark Kramer’s “Creating Shared Value” has been criticized as not being original — that people have been writing about much the same thing for decades and that it is just a relabeling of strategic CSR practices and that, in a move very much reminiscent of Milton Friedman’s famous critique of CSR, CSV “presumes compliance with the law and ethical standards, as well as mitigating any harm caused by the business”. Of course, as long as you can presume them away, then you don’t have to deal with them. Do you agree with these criticisms? If so, why? If not, why not?
